Update History

You will find the full Supatabs update history on this page.

#v0.7.1

Changes and Additions

  • 💵 Added a donation button in the bottom left corner in case you want to support the development of Supatabs 🙂
  • 💬 Added a feedback button in the bottom left corner.

Send feature requests, or bug reports through there if possible.

As there isn't any tracking in place Supatabs is relying on user feedback, just in case a few bugs slip through.

  • ⚙ Added a toggle to turn on support for native Chrome tab groups in the Options page. Requires optional tab groups permission.
  • 🤝 Supatab groups can now be restored to Chrome groups. This will automatically save their title, color, and collapsed state.
  • 🔗 Single tabs now support all native link element actions. E.g. right click menu.
  • ⚓ The search bar is now aligned with the narrow tabs for a better look and feel.
  • 📁 Added an Export & Import page. You can import and export tab lists from Supatabs and OneTab.
  • ➡️ Changed the share button shape and text. It now opens the Import & Export page instead of downloading a backup directly.

Bug fixes

  • 🦟 Minor bug fixes

#v0.6.0

Changes and Additions

  • ⬇️ You can now collapse/expand each tab group individually. Toggle the chevrons on the right of the tab group context menu.

Reduce visual overhead

  • ➡️⬅️ Tab groups are displayed narrower. This can be reverted to the old UI in the settings.
  • 💾 You can now export a snapshot of the Supatabs content to a text file. This is the first step towards automated backups, which will be an optional addition coming in the future.
